saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t
. >>> we are now awaiting remarks from the president and governor chris christie after their tour of storm-ravaged southern new jersey. the president took in the damage from a chopper, then visiting with new jerseyians at a storm shelter near atlantic city, accompanied by governor chris christie. the jersey shore, once home to the frivolous activities of a reality show, now marked as the area hardest hit by the storm. whole towns, swallowed by the storm. communities and lives left in disarray. and with six days to go until the presidential election, there were no overt politics in new jersey today. with the commander in chief seizing the moment to work with a republican governor, offering leadership and comfort in a moment of crisis and catastrophe. and while the president has canceled several days of campaigning to respond to the disaster, mitt romney is carrying on the campaign trail in florida today. mr. romney faces the challenge of pivoting a campaign based almost entirely on criticizing the president as a failure and facing dreaded questions on his statement that he'd cut fema and re

to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged o
'donnell." have a great night. >>> new jersey's republican governor chris christie has a new best friend, president obama. >> hurricane sandy bearing down on the entire eastern seaboard. >> bearing down on 60 million people across at least a dozen states. >> from delaware to north carolina. new york and new jersey. >> this was a devastating storm. >> in atlantic city part of the famous boardwalk has washed away. >> ground zero, floodwaters rushing into the construction site. >> many homes completely covered. >> massive six-alarm fire in new york's borough of queens. >> 3 feet of snow in parts of west virginia. >> 7.8 million people without power. >> flights are canceled. subways are shut down. >> the federal government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. >> we're a week from election day. >> just seven days to go. >> i don't give a damn about election day. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit. >> the election will take care of itself. >> i will tell you, this administration could give a damn less about election
, substance right, optics right, and has gotten boost that he's gotten from governor christie, which has been huge, i think, not game changer, but to whatever extent you could weigh this in out -- who knows what the effect is on tangible votes -- but in terms of what's happened over the week a good week for president obama, and a problematic week for governor romney. >> a story in politico, obama's reaction to a disaster coupled with a calculation to stop campaigning to supervise the relief effort from the oval office provided him with one thing he's needed with the first debate, opportunity to look presidential. presidential is what obama needed from sandy because a presidential image is what obama lost in his first debate with mitt romney. >> i think the debate made him look smaller and these events have made him look bigger. he was acting too presidential, like he didn't need to engage in that debate. it's not whether you're presidential or not. it's whether the stage is bigger in this situation, and it is. you are, as president, having to deal with real-life problems. he's taking executiv

, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit
